Warning Install Python Package from Source

my first hand experience

When you install it from source? How to uninstall it?

Now it’s not working and I think about trying the different version

So how to revert the installation?

Now it not easy

If I can warn you, it better to do it this way

python setup.py install --record installation.txt

now when you have to uninstall go to installation.tx

Not too late

Some people have installed with out --record already. Yuck.

So … what to do then? Where to look at it now?

Yes. I have a solution

python setup.py install --record installation.txt

run it again and see what happen

then trace it and revert the process.

Cheers!
